First we got a look at a teaser trailer for the upcoming remake of Disney’s Pete’s Dragon, but the dragon was nowhere to be seen. Later we got a look at the poster for the film, which hits theaters August 12th, but the dragon was once again absent. Finally, four months shy of the film’s release, we have a sneak peek at Pete’s furry friend, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.

In this version of the film, the dragon is described as a sweet and lovable friend to Oakes Fegley’s Pete, an orphan who lives in the woods. It seems to be quite a departure from Elliot, the adorable animated star of the original movie. So, tell us, what do you think?
